PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The RACER Strategy teaches students how to respond to open-ended questions. This strategy reminds students to answer questions completely and cite evidence and examples from the text.

I’ve seen similar strategies (RACE), but I found this strategy and explanation the most helpful for students:

R – Restate the question to create a topic sentence
A – Answer the question completely
C – Cite evidence from the text to support your answer
E – elaborate/explain the evidence
R – restate the answer to create a closing sentence OR relate the answer to something in your own life

I have created this packet to help students practice using the RACER strategy. In this packet, you will find 4 articles (all nonfiction), a graphic organizer, RACER questions, and an answer key for each question to show you what a RACER response looks like!

Four Articles Topics: Rosa Parks, Benjamin Franklin, Florida Manatees, and Sharks
